Ore to Operate the Plant. Mr. H. B. Meech, of New York City, who has been investigating the tiV mining interests of this county V request of Messrs. A. J. and W. 1 . Thurber, left for home on the 4.30 train Monday evening. Mr. Meech is a man well posted on minerals and mineral land forma tions, and has had many years ex perience in the Western mines as mining engineer, and in smelting and refining. IK- is the inventor of several of the modern processes for treating and smelting ores now in use aud now has a smel'er and works that will successfully treat all kinds of oie in this mineral belt, turning out each kind into bulion at the works. He guaranties to save 95 per cent, of the mineral that the ore contains and at a moderate price for treating. Mr. Meech visited Salisbury a few days ago looking for a location to ereyt his smelting works, and the city agreed to donate to him a locution and offered him some other inducements. While here he examined Asheboro Copper Mine and some of other mining properties in this section and ore from several others. Among them was the Walker prop erty near town, the B. F. New by property on the old homestead, and the Davis Mountain mine. All of these he pronounces good prospects and when developed deeper will will make good mines. All show good smelting ore and are located in hauling distance of Asheboro. He thinks we have as much accessable ore in this section as any place on the railroad so with proper effort on a part of the people of Asheboro, it would be possible for the smelter to be located here. Salisbury has donated nothing, or offered any inducement that Ashe boro cannot well afford to offer or donate as a town. With the in ducements that the mine and pros pect owners can offer in the way of contracts to furnish ore to the smelter and all done in good time, the writer believes that Mr. Meech and associates would locate the works at Asheboro instead of Salis bury. It would mean a great deal to and conntv, for with COMMENCEMENT DAY Bombay Institute Closed May 4th Large Attendance. CONGRESSIONAL CONVENTION. ADDRESS BY HON. CRARY. J. R.

The mineral sived would nearly pay expenses and when worked deeper would fully pay for development. Without a smelter near, these oies must be. thrown in the dump until better ore was reached that cottld be shipped, but the receipts would not more tbau pay the expenses of treating then1. This matter should be taken up at once by our people and the en terprise brought to Asheboro if possible. The mineial in th's section is of recognized value an l economical operation and energy ex ercised by our people is only uenled to make this a prosperous mining section.

Mr. McCrary's address was broad in its scope. He emphasized the importance of the home training :! mural development of a child in the school room. He eaid to educate the mind without educating the heart would only be- to increase high c- me. Whereas educating the heart is to iuspire education of the mind and the combination of the two would produce the ideal citizen. He also laid great stress upon the necessity of better school buildings, modern ly equipped; better paid teachers and was strong in advocat ing local taxation as the only sure means of accomplishing this end. Mr. McCrary is most earnest in his argument for schools and amimercial progress in our state and is the subject of much favora ble comment by all who have heard him.

Aycock to Enter the Arena Makes Ills Election As sured Annual Address on Confederate Memorial Day at Raleigh. Gorman News Bureau, Raleigh, N. ,'., May 7, 190G. Unless the admirers of Chief Jns tice Walter Clark elect to make such a contest it looks now as though there will be no formal aud organ ized opposition to the re-elentiou of Senator Simmons, since Ex-Governor Aycock has at last delinately an nounced that he is not and does not intend to become a candidate for United States Senator before the egislature to be elected this year. This announcement, as some of Governor Aycock's friends suggest, n ill not prevent the legislature from SURPRISE BIRTHDAY PARTY. electing him senator, if a majority ! of the Democratic members of the Given the President of Providence irnnpral asspmlilu shnnlil nrfor Viim Phllathca Class Miss Pearl Chamness. j. o, i o:. .l vj umowu loiuiuiuuB ur any otner Friday atternoon on way 4tn, while Miss Chamness was seated at the machine she suddenly dropped her sewingforshe saw cireliugarouud the house Philatheas in fishing array.

Therefore it can be set down pretty accurately at this time thatt Senator Simmons will remain in the seat at present held by him until March 1013, if not longer, and he will not be an old man then by any means. Several of the present members of cougress from thi3 state will have opposition in the nominating con ventions this summer. Tne an uounce inent was made to-day that Mr. H. L.

NEGLIGENCE OF FLAGMAN, i There are two or three aspirants in the eighth and as many in the tenth who would like to succeed Black burn and Gudger; the opinion pre vails here that "Dick" Hackett, of Wilkes, is the man to put E. Spen cer out of business and he seems to stand the best chance of the nonmi nation, although Mr. Newland whem Blackburn defeated at the last elec tion is also a candidate for the nomi nation again, as well as one or two others. There has been some talk on the jiart of opposite elements about get ting out opponents to contest the re nomination of Pou, in the fourth, and W. W. Kitchin, in the fifth, but they have not yet materialized so far. At the Confederate memorial day services in Raleigh on Thursday of this week the subject of the annual addiess this year will be General Matt W. Ransom aud the orator who will deliver the address is Col. W. H. S. Burgwyn.Jnow of Weldon, one of the most gallant of sol Jiers. That extraordinary petition for a "prohibition" election in Raleigh, alluded to in these letters last week was not presented to the board of aldermen last Friday night as ad vertised, so the election has not yet been ordered.
